I work with a MacBookPro, system macOSCatalina 10.15.7 and the current Firefox browser 84.0.2.

I am currently having problems downloading documents.

Since yesterday I can no longer call up and download the online edition of a newspaper that I have subscribed to.

This is still possible without any problems using the Safari browser.

I updated the Firefox browser on January 7th, 2021 (to 84.0.2).

I haven't changed anything to the Firefox settings since January 7th, 2021.

What should I do?

I've had this happen twice now. Getting a new PC and wanting to transfer my bookmarks from old to new. I have had bookmarks on the old computer arranged in order of priority from left to right on my bookmarks bar. Did the export to create a HTML file and saved it so that I could import to new Firefox browser on new computer. So far so good. However, when setting up new browser and importing my bookmarks from the HTML file, it just creates a single folder on the new browser's bookmarks bar, instead of spreading my bookmarks out on the new bookmarks bar as it should. The bookmarks in the imported folder are still in the order I want, but to get them as individual items on the bookmarks bar, it seems I'd have to drag and drop them one by one to the new bookmarks bar. Solution please?

1. I had firefox in a 64bit win7 proff with relatively high specs desktop forever. Last week it started showing update notification every time i restart firefox and I choose to "remind me later" or something like that (I made the settings so that it won't auto install).

2. During that week i did restart firefox and the computer and everything was normal untill yesterday when I did something normal but I rarely do, that is i turned of the computer for more than a minute and then turned it back on. Then firefox started having trouble loading certain webpages. Things like youtube, google maps, google search, bing home page, were flawless, while things like some businesses (i remember craigslist and goodwill) and some famous podcast webpages and my wifi controlled devices struggle (take too long, then message that they were taking too long, but never show up)

3. I first "refreshed" my firefox, then reinstalled it, then when it wasn't fixed deleted the whole thing and tried installing a fresh downloaded version (I think it was 83). The downloaded installer tells me that i already had firefox and if i wish to reinstall it and after that it takes a long time to throw a message at me that starts with ("hmmmm" for "some" reason unknown reason, the installation failed to work) or very similar wording.

4. The only browser left in the computer is the microsoft one that comes with the computer and it does open the modzilla website but refuses to download the installed (obviously) so i have to download it from a windows tablet and transfer it to this computer.

any advice/insight is very much welcome

Every time I install an update my Amazon password no longer works. And, I mean every time. This has been going on for the last 6-12 updates and I am forced to go into my Amazon account from another browser and change my password. I know the password being used in FF is correct because I use LastPass. This doesn't happen with any other browser. I've loved FF for years but this is totally unacceptable and I'm starting to like Edge. Any suggestions.

I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.
